It's championship time in this week's fresh episodes of The Prince of Tennis! The Seigaku team is raring to go, but the focus this week is crazy happenings on and off the court. First, how does a stray cat running out into the middle of an intersection affect a high school tennis match? We're about to find out! Then Ryoma's grizzled dad tries to pretend he's a member of the PTA (as if that's going to convince anyone). And what's with everyone on the Ginka Junior High team coming down with a "stomachache" at the same time? Should we also mention Oishi's teddy bear (aw, cute...) and the fake heart attack? Forget the real games, the mind games have already begun!

Episode 41: Trouble
The second half of the Metropolitan Matches begins! Fudomine Junior High plays badly due to circumstances beyond their control and forfeits. Ginka Junior High also forfeits and Seigaku advances to the next match to play Yamabuki Junior High!
Episode 42: Oishi is Targeted
Kikumaru and Oishi start their doubles match against Yamabuki Junior High’s Higashikata and Minami. Oishi confronts the same pair that he was unable to beat in last year’s match. And finally Momoshiro’s match with Sengoku starts!
Yin and Yang: The forces of good and evil battle it out inside the very bodies of Kikyo and Naraku...and ultimately the Shikon Jewel itself! In the aftermath, a beloved friend of Inuyasha is tragically lost...forever
Get Inuyasha Vol. 47 now!
So...who the heck is attacking all the mystical sites? The suspense is killing me!
Kekkaishi vol. 21, available on May 11, provides more clues... But the situation is getting pretty desperate! The mysterious attacker destroys the mystical site of a poor cute little guardian deity who carries an adorable red umbrella. After his precious home is destroyed, the guardian loses his mind. This leads to terrible consequences for the Karasumori Site and our friends, Karasumori’s guardians (the human ones, not the deity type). And that adorable umbrella turns out not to be so cute after all...
But I still can’t figure out who the mystical site attacker is!
Can you...?! Any good theories at least...?!
If I edit the next volume I might find out! You, of course, will have to wait till the next volume comes out in, oh, August, 2010.
Uh-oh. If volume 22 comes out in August, that means it hands off to the printer in (expletive deleted).

As the Pro Exams approach the grand finale, everyone is gunning for Hikaru... even when they don't play him! In this week's fresh episodes of Hikaru no Go, we bid a sad farewell to a few competitors as the field gets cut down. As with everything, there are winners and losers, and you have to be a hard-hearted person not to feel a bit for Tsubaki when he gives Hikaru that final ride on his motorcycle in episode 42. Still, it's not how you win or lose, it's how you play the game, and we're going to miss Tsubaki's, er, unusual approach to Go.
